I've been taking T3-only for about 40 days now & I was on T4-75mcg & T3 10 mcg a day for a month, before that. I feel fine on T3-alone, am up to 25 mcg a day but I have a nagging feeling I want to be on T4 & T3, as it appears to me to be the simplest; if only the Levothyroxine was agreeable to my thyroid. The thing is I really want to try NDT before I try anything else. I feel as if T3-only should be my 'last resort,' because, let's face it, no doctor or endo wants to prescribe T3-only, to begin with: they want you on T4 just to prescribe some T3. This is why I would like to try T4 again and/or NDT before I say I am intolerant to everything else, namely T4, and/or T4, T3-together, and, I'd like to try NDT before “giving in to T-3-only” as it appears as if the NDT has T4 in it also, so I may have a bad reaction to NDT and, also, my, thyroid has it, (I still have one) and so I'd like to try every(any)thing else before I stick with T3 only. So, if anyone else here has had or has now, a similar “problem,” please answer for me these four questions: (1.) Was T4 “intolerant” to you? (I had headaches, heart palpitations and brain fog until I quit taking it.)
(2.) Did you add T3 to it and what happened? (3.) Did you try NDT yet? And if you did, what were the results? (4.) If you are now on T3-alone how do you feel and have you found your optimum dose yet? Thanks in advance to anyone, and everyone, who answers these 4 difficult questions, or has any comment.
